Bookmark and Share

WASHINGTON-U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao announced that a notice in poster format explaining the rights of employees under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) is now available for employers to download from the Department of Labor (DOL) Web site.

The Veterans Benefits Improvement Act, enacted by Congress in December 2004, mandates that employers provide the notice to "all persons entitled to rights and benefits under USERRA." Employers may meet this obligation by posting the notice in a prominent place where employees customarily check for such information.

The USERRA poster is now available at

Employers can obtain detailed information about USERRA by calling 1-866-4-USA-DOL or by visiting www.dol.gov/vets/programs/userra/
